This was disclosed by Nigeria’s Labour Minister, Chris Ngige, during a meeting with the striking National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT).

He noted that the FG is hopeful of arriving at a conclusion soon with the union, stating that the academic unions do not take advantage of open-door policies with the FG.

With an open mind, we will arrive at something. Once we arrive at something, it will be done,” he said.

He, however, noted that the renegotiation of the 2009 agreement would not be immediate because the Education Ministry had put in place a committee to handle it.
